Etymology questions are a little bit tricky to handle during the Area 51 process. From the existing language sites, it is likely that we would only allow questions which show conclusively why other resources (usually other dictionaries) don't answer the question. With only a title and no question body, it's hard to justify these questions in Area 51. You could try explaining briefly in the question title which dictionaries don't give an answer, or explain that in a comment.

  • In principle, I thought at this point we should only have one question of each kind. Many etymology questions would be pretty similar in nature, so one example should be enough. Many questions are hard to describe sufficiently well with just a title. – Joonas Ilmavirta Jul 6 at 3:19
